If you and your child discuss this option and want to raise money, please fill out the main envelope form, collect the money (preferably online), and return the envelope to the PE teachers by Thursday, April 9th.

The other option is to pay in the form of CHECKS made out to THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION. PLEASE DO NOT SEND CASH. Don’t forget that if your child raises $50 or more, they’ll receive a T-shirt, so please mark your child’s SIZE on the envelope.
